This thursday its all about Bling




You need to click on the images to see the bling detail. This week at this thursday its all about bling, and this weeks created by hand challenge is to use a product you have not used before so this also fits in perfectly. So for my entry i have followed the fashion as seen on TV and got myself some of the new papermania Coredinations card stock. Its one colour on the outside then another colour in the middle that is a contrasting lovely colour. Cuttlebug embossing folder i forget the name of the one i used and don't have the packaging to look at so sorry cant tell you which one it is. Lightly sanded the image now on my first go the embossing squashed so i kept it on the folder when i sanded the next one to stop it from squashing or maybe i was just too hard with it. I then mounted the images on Bazzil Bling cardstock which is so sparkly and pretty and mounted onto a cream, or white card, one has added ribbon and all 3 have sparkling stones to match the bling theme. I will probably stamp happy birthday or something on the bottom when i have decided what i want them to be, maybe thank you cards who knows. Top Tip: This is very messy the sanding excess goes everywhere.

Wow! This sounds like seriously hard work and then mess to clean up too!!! But the results are fab. I wouldn't have the patience I am sure.
Love,
